"Spring Vacation" seems to borrow a bit of Elton John's "Tiny Dancer".

Ex-CUSE me ? It resembles "TD", even passingly, about as much as "The Star Spangled Banner" sounds like "4.33".

Reading those credits made me really sad, for some reason.
Maybe 'cause it's (possibly) the last Beach Boys album and Joe Thomas' name is all over it.
Doesn't mean it won't be great (I like a lot of Imagination), but...

TATD is a great opening for the first BB album in decades. I loved it. I don't want to hear it again though until the album is released. Spring Vacation really seems like it could have been a not so great track on Imagination. But I think TWGMTR is pretty good and that opening number is really sad and really cool. I'm back to a "glass half full" approach to the record now.

Can we keep the full info over there for a bit, rather than reposting it here? Just a small request!
It is great that the first critical reactions to the album were shared before the songwriting credits.

I haven't heard a stream. I've heard bits and bobs of the songs via a telephone conversation with a friend. That's it. Not enough to judge, really, and so I edited my comments. I can say, though, that lots of what I heard was better than "Spring Vacation." Just in case folks are worried.

well don't feel the need to edit yourself.  If you have heard bits and bobs that's more than the rest of us, so share your thoughts, they are welcomed here...

 I hope this won't be their last album, because there definitely needs to be one more with songs written by the band members with Brian.

I *can* tell you that any worry about Bon Jovi's involvement in "Summer's Gone" can be allayed. Because it's remarkable.

Ex-CUSE me ? It resembles "TD", even passingly, about as much as "The Star Spangled Banner" sounds like "4.33".

It's really only a few notes, but that section of the song immediately reminded me of a similar phrase in the Elton John track. Since the "Sunshine" coda was quite similar to Elton John's "Love Lies Bleeding", I wondered if Mr. Thomas has an affinity for Mr. John's compositions.

Obviously, it's impossible to write a completely new melody that doesn't have something in common with what came before and I have no problem with the melodies of either "Spring Vacation" or "Sunshine".

This seems to be Wilson and Thomas' follow-up to Imagination, with Beach Boys vocals. Interesting.

So no songs by either David, Alan, or Bruce made it to the record... very disappointed about this.

I'm not the biggest "Imagination" fan, but I'm staying positive. I really like two of the three tracks I've heard so far. And I can forgive them the modern sound on Spring Vacation. They are, first and foremost, a pop act.

One thing I would like to have heard on "Spring Vacation" is just one voice singing a lead line, instead of multiple voices each and every line. Hopefully, there are some "naked" vocals on other songs on the album. As much as I love hearing the BBs sing harmony, I really like hearing their individual voices shine through too (even if their age is starting to show a bit).

Yeah, I believe in a recent interview Brian said that many of the songs were from '98. Wasn't Brian goin' to do another Beach Boys album after Imagination but then Carl died. I'm not sure about that. If that's the case, maybe this was written in '98 with the boys in mind.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Yes, I'm pretty surprised to see Thomas' name on every single song except "Daybreak."  I' figured we'd get at least a couple of Wilson-Bennett songs.  And poor Al seems to be getting shut out at every instance (no song on the album or in the show, not included in the Fallon interview, etc).  Maybe someday we'll hear the whole backstory.

I don't think we should talk about "poor Al", the man hardly writes any tunes. Just look at his first solo record and what's on it!
